Cost of Botox vs. Plastic Surgery
Botox is a more cost-effective procedure as compared to other cosmetic and noninvasive facial rejuvenation treatments. You don’t need to undergo anesthesia or sedation for getting Botox injections. You can resume your regular activity and chores immediately as well.
In most instances, anti-aging procedures tend to be expensive. This is true for RF, lasers, deep chemical peels, and ultrasound. Skin care treatments generally require more than one session. However, where Botox is concerned, you can get great results in just one sitting.
Botox injections prove to be more cost effective in hindsight as opposed to other facial rejuvenation procedures. This is because it doesn’t involve the use of anesthesia, post-op recovery or multiple consultations.
Cost of Botox can Differ
Botox is a customizable treatment plan that can be tweaked for suiting an individual’s needs and goals. It is possible for two patients at the same practice to pay different rates. Botox treatment cost can vary between two practices even if the extent of procedure is similar. Extensive treatment or off-label uses, as a rule, costs more than regular ones, such as removing frown lines and crow’s feet.
You may have to pay more if you use Botox for minimizing nasolabial folds and other non-label applications. The overall monetary amount is usually determined according to the number of units required.
Beware of Low-Priced Options
Botox parties and off-site procedures have become quite popular in recent years. These places have significantly lesser priced options that are attracting people. You should understand that Botox needs to be administered by a qualified and reputed provider. In fact, FDA stresses that the injection should only be provided by experienced and trained injectors. This is because of the several potent side effects of botulinum toxin.
Insurance Coverage and Financing Options
Botox treatments are not covered by the typical healthcare insurance provider if you are seeking it as a cosmetic wrinkle reduction treatment. But if Botox is used as a medical necessity, you might get insurance coverage. Patients can pay for the treatment through several financing options that are provided by medical care finance companies. These are generally provided at attractive interest rates.
Patients can also call the manufacturer of Botox (Allergan, Inc.) for free information on insurance. Female cosmetic surgeon Dr. Farah Naz Khan receives patients from Dallas, Plano, Texas, and nearby areas for Botox wrinkle reduction injectable procedure.
